    I have been working at deVere Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Definitely a great office in Milan which is very supportive and focused on development and progression. And a great city. So if you want to live abroad and work in finance (and get professional exams) it's a great opportunity. And the rewards when you qualify are unlimited, the trouble is making it there.

    Cons

    A lot of hard work, which isn't a bad thing, but the results are slow because of the nature of the industry. The first year or so of being a business development manager looks like it's going to be hard slog for not much money, and some quit.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency, especially in recruitment.

    I did my training with Mark Reed and Lindsay in Malta. It was hard work and they push you hard, but that's only so you achieve the best you can. I am now based in Dubai and loving it.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at deVere Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Opportunity to work in very different places and to push yourself under the guidance of veteran salesmen and sales trainers. People will give it to you straight here and if you're the type to enjoy a challenge you'll do great.

    Cons

    There will be personal expenses incurred - don't be naive about this. Save up a good bit of money and be ready to budget yourself and live simply when starting out.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent about expenses incurred. Not only does it encourage people to quit who you've already invested time and resources in, but it hurts morale and inevitably damages the company's reputation among its own employees which is really a tragedy given that deVere has so many great things to offer young professionals.

    Pros

    deVere Group makes you to work to your fullest, give your all and commit to the work. In return you will receive large amount of knowledge, sales skills and the know-how of networking and can experience the life of an expatriate in one of the beautiful location around the world. Nothing comes easy in life and deVere knows this, and therefore, we are looking for people who has goals in mind, who knows what they want... from life and who knows they wants to challenge themselves. I recommend this opportunity to anyone who feels the aforementioned points are pointing at you.
